********************************************

10 good reasons to stay in Mantua province during holidays.

1- Mantua is a very ancient town: it has got Etruscan origins, but it flourished in the age of the Communes and, above all, during the long Gonzaga seigniory (1328-1707). The Commune and the short seigniory of Bonacolsi family left important buildings, such as Palazzo Bonacolsi, Palazzo del Podestà, Palazzo della Ragione, and churches such as San Lorenzo rotunda and Santa Maria del Gradaro.
Palazzo Ducale – the Ducal Palace - is the main sign of the Gonzaga seigniory: it is one of the largest Italian palaces, counting about 500 rooms and several internal squares, courtyards and gardens.

2. Palazzo Te and the Ducal Palace.

3. Renzo Dall'Ara described Mantua cookery as “Cucina di principi e di popolo”, id est cookery for princes and for common people.
Actually it fitted for the refined Gonzaga court, where cooks had plentiful supply of ingredients. But it fitted also for common people, whose inventiveness made almost anything edible and tasty. Modern restaurants are discovering more and more those poor ingredients: chicory, radicchio, nettle, borage, luartis – which is a local kind of wild hop -, herbs, onion, carrot, pumpkin... So, you can taste nettle dumplings, luartis omelette, borage crepes and the most famous pumpkin tortelli. And how not to say about agnolini, a typical variety of ring-shaped pasta stuffed with a mix of meat. Mantua cookery has a really ancient tradition and is very important in Lombard and Italian cookery: several Mantuan restaurants are reviewed on prestigious international restaurant guides.
